The Best Latin America Travel Blogs

This page contains affiliate links. Please read our disclosure for more info.

Reading other travel blogs is my favourite way to research our travels and find up to date information not available in the guidebooks. These are the blogs we have found useful for travelling around Latin America.

Uncornered Market

We’ve made no secret that Audrey and Dan are two of our favourite travel bloggers. They have just finished travelling around Central and South America for more than a year, and as always their writing is thoughtful as well as useful, and their photos are stunning. They share some of their travel tips in our interview with them.

The Future is Red

Leigh and her family have settled down for a few years in Salta, Argentina, where we had the pleasure of staying with them. This isn’t your typical travel blog but you’ll find tips on Argentina and Panama, where they also lived.

Tourist to Townie

Gareth spent ten months in Buenos Aires with the aim of really getting to know the city and becoming part of the community. He also travelled around the Salta area, where we met him.

Viajar Sin Rumbo

We met Adam in Rio, and while his blog isn’t very well known his insightful writing and beautiful photography deserve to be seen by many more. He spent seven months travelling through South America, and his posts about Colombia have made us desperate to visit.

Bacon is Magic

Ayngelina has been travelling for six months so far, from Mexico, through Central America and is now heading down the continent to Argentina. We love her focus on food and her positive attitude to setbacks like getting mugged.

  13. Like Leigh, I feel fortunate that we’ve met a few of these bloggers in person. Now we just need to figure out a way for our paths to cross!

    Thanks so much for including us on this list and we’re really glad our pieces on Latin America were useful!

    • Your blog is my first port of call when planning the next country to visit, and your writing gives us something to aspire to. I really do hope we cross paths one day – hopefully in Vancouver, although I know your plans are as up in the air as ours!

    Noah and I were just talking last night how much we miss you guys. It was so great having you here.

    And it looks like we’ve had a good number of these bloggers stay with us in Salta. Now it’s my mission to have the rest here, too.

    Hope you’re loving Bolivia.
